Liminalities is an open-access peer-reviewed journal for performance studies, theory and praxis. Our goal is to embrace the possibilities for presenting work in performance studies (broadly construed) by exploring and exploiting the "staging" potential of digital media. We publish essays, aesthetic works, digital media projects, artist pages, performance scripts, themed forums, documentaries, reviews, interviews, works about performance in urban environments, and works about pedagogy & performance. Follow the journal information link for information about submitting projects and essays to Liminalities.
